Networking needs have evolved quickly with technology, which means there’s now a large variety of network types on the market. Two of the most common types of networks are LAN and WAN:

LAN stands for local area network, which basically means this network will connect devices over a reasonably short distance for data, file and resource sharing purposes. These are usually privately managed for places like office buildings or schools.

A WAN network is essentially the opposite – a wide area network that can span across regions or an entire continent. The internet is the largest WAN that connects billions of computers worldwide.
